‘The best 7 weeks of my life’: EastEnders star Louisa Lytton shares adorable snap cradling her newborn daughter Aura


She welcomed her first child, a baby girl, with fiancé Ben Bhanvra last month.

And Louise Lytton has revealed being a mother to daughter Aura has been ‘the best 7 weeks of my life’ as she shared an adorable snap of herself cradling her newborn tot on Tuesday.

The EastEnders actress, 32, who plays Ruby Allen in the BBC soap, looked every inch the doting mum as she lovingly held her baby close to her in the new Instagram image.

Louisa wrapped up warm for autumn weather, donning a dark beanie hat, floral jacket and black leggings while sitting in a red leather chair.

The new mum gazed at her daughter and tenderly held her head, with the little one looking sweet in a pink baby grow.

Captioning her snap, Louisa shared just how much she was loving motherhood, but also joked about her lack of sleep. 

She penned: ‘ The best 7 weeks of my life (would love a little 8 hour sleep though).’

It comes after Louisa recently spoke out on battling coronavirus soon after giving birth to her first child last month. 

Louisa explained during an appearance on Loose Women on earlier this month: ‘It was difficult because I had a long labour which resulted in an emergency C-section and just as we were finding our feet, we then both got Covid. 

‘So it’s not been the best start, but she’s been fine throughout, so that’s all we can ask for really.’

The star went on to explain she tried her best to prepare herself for parenthood but admitted she felt there was nothing that could ready her for becoming a mother.

She said: ‘I just don’t think anything prepares you. I read every book, I spoke to every friend and she’s the best thing that’s ever happened to us, but it is tough.’

Louisa is currently taking time out from EastEnders after giving birth, but says she’d happily return to the show in the future, and may even let Aura star as her on-screen child.

‘Yeah I could,’ she said. ‘Definitely, if I go back, it’ll be with a child, whether she wants to be part of it, who knows.’

The couple were expecting a boy throughout Louisa’s pregnancy and were surprised when they welcomed a little girl.

Louisa admitted they struggled to name her at first as she and Ben had been considering boys’ names but they eventually settled on Aura.

‘Throughout my whole pregnancy we thought we were having a boy, so we had a shortlist of girls’ names and boys’ names,’ explained Louisa. ‘But we forgot about the girls’ names. Ben found it somewhere… 

‘When we then had her, it was such a shock to the system that we didn’t name her for the first few days because we hadn’t thought about it, so we went back to list and it seemed to be the name that suited her the most.’

Louisa and her fiancé Ben announced her pregnancy in a heartwarming Mother’s Day post in March.
